When our daughter was born I dove deeply into the various active kid gear available on the market. I either own or have used most of the different devices out there. I have always enjoyed being outside and exercising, and I was nervous about how that might change when we added a little one to our team. Kidrunner is a solution for running and skiing and is my absolute favorite. I have used a Bob and a Chariot for running but I love being able to use my hands and not modify my stride. The Kid Runner is my go to for Run an Ski. (I like the Shot Gun Bike for biking). We have run multiple marathons for a Sunday long run, but mostly it is a nice 1-1.5 hour evening run together as a family. After 4 years we are on our second set of rubber tires.
KidRunner recently launched Kid Runner Ski 2.0. I have been skiing for the last 4 years with KidRunner Ski 1.0, I love the product but it has required a few modifications and it has been fun to work with KidRunner to put those improvements into the 2.0 model. The cockpit is collapsible for easy transport and the skis/wheels transition with a push button which is great for transport and/or a quick transition. We have flown with our KidRunner all over the world, as it checks in as a 'free' bag as a stroller with most airlines. We bring our KidRunner with us everywhere since it allows us to go out together without needing to track down a sitter. The opportunity to play, ski and run together as a family is a major priority in my life and I love that our daughter can see the importance of health and fitness in our lives. She loves to listen to our conversations and join in to tell her own stories. We are also big fans of listening to audiobooks.
Now that she is older we love to bring her skis along so that she can enjoy some skiing on her own too. She also has a chance to ride in the KidRunner if she gets tired. Papa and Mama need to get their workout in too. This way we are not pushing her to be out longer that she wants to.
My KidRunner setup is the lightest stroller on the market at just under 20 pounds. I am also a fan of the single-point connection to the waist belt. If you are looking for the best option available for Run and Ski, I encourage you to invest in a KidRunner.
